The last time we saw Cameron Diaz at a What To Expect When You’re Expecting shindig, was in L.A., and she was rocking a tiny semi-sheer Valentino mini dress. Perfection. Then she flew across the pond, and inadvertently, took on one of the U.K’s own superstars in the style stakes. We’re talking about Cheryl Cole, who attended the London premiere of the film last night and wore white, just like Cameron did. While both of them wore the same color, and look like best pals in all of the photographs we see of them together, they did wear completely different silhouettes.
Cameron wore a white, strapless Stella McCartney jumpsuit, heels and bag along with Kimberly McDonald jewelry. The actress is a tall, gorgeous drink of water and the upper half of her body rocked it, even though her hair is a tad messy. But the lower half could really have done with some alterations because the pants are ill-fitting and needed to be hemmed. Cheryl, on the other hand, wore a Victoria Beckham gown and suffered from the same problem. Her torso looks great, but the skirt of the gown, which is eggshell as opposed to the stark white of the halter, looks like it’s been pinned on. Both the ladies — or their stylists — made some really rookie mistakes. But since this a fashion face-off, we have to know who you think looked better, because we’re torn!

Good to know that one single red carpet can take care of a long-standing premiere dilemma. What length do you wear when attending a film’s red carpet? Do you go full floor-length gown, mid-length or short, cocktail? We suppose it depends on who the star is and the reception of the film, of course, but let’s just make it easier and say that there should be some rules of thumb. And for this, we should thank the ladies of What to Expect When You’re Expecting who made these sartorial go-to’s very clear at the premiere of the film, that went down last night in L.A.
• Don’t: Do not go full-length if you’re planning to wear a somewhat sexed-up version of a maternity gown like Jennifer Lopez. Granted it may be a Maria Lucia Hohan number, and slashed down the front, but it is not a win. That belt will make you look boxy. The sleeves will add volume. You will look awkward.
• Don’t: Do not go full-length if you’re planning to mix prints that clash horribly, like Brooklyn Decker. Considering how tall that girl is, there was a lot of fabric to screw up. Did Brooklyn really have to pick the one bad Giambattista Valli gown ever made? It looks like a flea market maxi that no one wants to buy.
• Do: Do go mid-length if you’re planning to work a silhouette and pattern like Elizabeth Banks. You can tell it’s Alexander McQueen a mile away. Perfect color — delicious burgundy — perfect fit, perfect cutwork pattern. If you can somewhat match this effort …. always wear mid-length.
• Do: Do go short, if you’re planning to go short, sparkly and sweet in Elie Saab, like Anna Kendrick has done here.
• Do: Do go sexy and semi-sheer in Valentino if you’ve got the body and the legs of Cameron Diaz.
See? Wasn’t that easy? You’re welcome!

It’s been said that comedy isn’t pretty, but we’re about to prove them wrong. There’s a gang of lovely ladies hilariously hitting up the big screen this summer, and they look amazing as they do it! We hope you’ve been following our Summer Movie Preview, where we’ve brought you the best of this summer’s cinematic heroes, heroines and villains. But now it’s time to give you the rundown on the women who will make you laugh ’til you cry, or get thrown out of the theater.
First and foremost, we’re expecting huge comedy from What to Expect When You’re Expecting. The film boasts Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Elizabeth Banks and Anna Kendrick! Mila Kunis is already a comedy legend at the super young age of 28, and we can’t wait to see her she compete with a teddy bear for Mark Wahlberg’s affections in Ted. The greatly anticipated movie sees her collaborates with her Family Guy co-star Seth MacFarlane. Malin Akerman takes us way back to the ’80s as a reporter in Rock of Ages, while Helena Bonham Carter takes us back even further to the ’70s in her husband Tim Burton’s latest film, Dark Shadows.
What To Expect When You’re Expecting hyped its leading ladies and their respective prosthetic bellies today in a new series of character posters. We were just wondering why it isn’t acceptable to clutch your abdomen in public (sometimes you just need a clutch!) when it struck us: All these actresses with bulging bellies, including the lovely Anna Kendrick and Elizabeth Banks, look a lot like us … after a gigantic, delicious meal. One that featured chili, perhaps? A hearty stew? A platter of assorted fudge?
Either way, everyone enjoys having something in their bellies, whether it’s a tiny human or a personal pan pizza. The movie is coming out May 11, so they’ve probably settled on a final script, but we couldn’t help but fantasize about what our poster taglines would say if we could fiddle with the film’s premise. And if we were really, really, really hungry:
While you might think pregnancy is just an awesome nine-month-long vacation during which you can eat pickles and peanut butter and whatever other gross combination of foods you want without people giving you the side-eye, the What To Expect When You’re Expecting trailer teaches us a very different lesson: namely, that having a baby in your uterus makes you lose your damn mind. Of course, Elizabeth Banks‘ prenatal crack up isn’t the only topic covered by what appears to be a very informative film. From Dad-sthma to spontaneous dance routines to magical pregnancy unicorns, we broke down the important baby times lessons offered in the trailer for you. Because if you’re already pregnant, you know there is no way your ravaged mind can make sense of it on it’s own!
